Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies {Gluten-Free}

I came home for the holiday weekend on Wednesday night last week. Normally I cook more for the holidays but by the time I arrived most of Thanksgiving dinner had already been planned. I decided to contribute some ad hoc cookies because, well, when are extra cookies ever a bad thing? I’m usually a purist…

Double Take: Microwave Fudge

Happy President’s Day weekend to all my American readers. I’m going to admit that until 2 days ago I had no clue it was President’s Day today; in fact, I wished one of my friends a happy Martin Luther King day until I looked that up and realized I’m a month behind. Oops. I haven’t…

Yellow Mashed Potatoes

Every year for Thanksgiving we’ve had mashed Russet potatoes, and they’ve never really caught my attention. This year, since I’ve started to warm up a lot to the organic yellow potatoes I find at Whole Foods, I thought I’d try making mashed potatoes with those. They’re slightly waxier and starchier than Russet, which makes them…

Cinnamon Honey Butter

This week is all about Thanksgiving recipes. In some respects that was poor planning on my part, since Thanksgiving won’t come around again for another 51 weeks; but I hope some of these recipes you’ll be able to work in and enjoy for Christmas or other times during the year, like this one. This was…

Creamy Mashed Squash

Is it too soon to start dreaming about Thanksgiving side dishes? We only have a little more than a month to go so I’m going to say not. The truth is, warm, comforting Holiday dishes are so good there’s no reason not to eat them all season long, except that they might fill you out…

Butter Toffee Peanut Butter

I’ve tried a lot of different peanut butters, but Naturally Nutty’s Butter Toffee Peanut Butter really takes the cake toast, with a sweet, buttery flavor combined with crunchy sugar granules. You can buy this peanut butter from their online store, or in stores if you’re lucky enough to live in Michigan. I, however, am cheap…

Gluten-Free Whoopie Pies

Who’s ready to make whoopie? I shouldn’t have been allowed to watch The Newlywed Game growing up; those euphemisms were not hard for a 6 year old to figure out. Also The Match Game; you don’t have to tell me where Alice told Frank to stick his blank. I got side-tracked. I meant to tell…

Alton Brown’s Microwave Peanut Butter Fudge

This recipe is a life-changer. I’ve long been obsessed with microwave chocolate fudge. I’ve tried making my own peanut butter fudge in the microwave in the past but the texture was never as good as the chocolate version. Finally, when I saw that Alton Brown had a recipe for microwave peanut butter fudge I knew…

Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

  I’ve had a lot of gluten-free baking disasters happen to me. Cookies are the worst; there’s no protein structure in most gluten-free flours to keep them from spreading. When I read this recipe I was intrigued but skeptical. There’s no way a cookie could work with just almond flour I thought. Despite having doubts…

Brussel Sprout and Potato Hash With Fried Eggs

I can never have a savory breakfast; it just doesn’t appeal to me at all. I need something sweet and as close to a dessert as I can get away with eating when I wake up. Dinner is another story. I love a big plate of hot, savory food at night. I also love eating…
